The Show: I’m John Barnes in the box, I blaze hard after mosque…

If the relentless barrage of news about COVID-19 and coronavirus is getting you down then let Riz Ahmed’s “The Long Goodbye” take your mind off it for a few minutes…

The Show: My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…

In which Fraserhead does things a little bit differently today by starting off with the slow, slow, slow burners and builds up to the bangers at the end, with all sorts in between…

The new Ben Woods album PUT is finally out next Wednesday, and on white vinyl no less. I thought Mr. Woods’ single ROMANCY from earlier this year was going to be my favourite track of 2019 but I didn’t count on hearing another gentle lullaby in the form of GOOD 2 BE SLEEPING. How can you not love a song with the lyric “My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…”?

The Show: After The Screaming Stops / Leaving Neverland

Trailers split up today’s show. One is our favourite music documentary from last year, Bros’ “After The Screaming Stops”. The other is a forthcoming HBO film about Michael Jackson which, unfortunately but necessarily, is most definitely not about music.

The Show: Georgia? What about Michigan, Boston, Florida, Jamaica or Jordan? Or Scunthorpe.

Welcome to our “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” YouTube wormhole, wherein the Charlie Daniel’s Band classic is re-interpreted in a variety of ways. Several are zany, one is borderline racist, one is evangelical but all of them all awful. You’re welcome.

The only reason we’re giving the K.M.C. Kru a pass is because we are suckers for that late 80’s early 90’s hip hop vibe.
